The Salta Sibaya Estate's shopping centre, spanning 8,968 square meters, is a vital gathering place for the diverse community it serves. In light of the growing trend of online shopping, it is crucial for shopping centres to prioritize the experience they provide. To that end, COA has developed a courtyard that places a premium on human interaction. Featuring landscaped elements that encourage people-watching, this covered area offers a welcoming and comfortable space for a variety of shops and restaurants. It is also designed to host events such as weekend markets or product launches.
The design of this shopping centre incorporates enduring principles using materials such as polished concrete, face brick, and concrete soffits, which require minimal maintenance and upkeep. An interesting feature of the shopping centre is its unique covered walkway, which is made from off-shutter concrete. The design is uncluttered, with signage located above the shopfronts and walkway lighting on the columns. Additionally, the columns serve to conceal the stormwater downpipes.
The shopping centre’s success is due to its comprehensive approach to providing a wide range of options, comfort, convenience, safety from traffic, security, pleasant atmosphere, ample parking, and easy accessibility.
